Page optimization

  • HTML 58.5 kB
    Images 16.8 kB

    • Original 58.5 kB
    • After minification 58.3 kB
    • After compression 14.9 kB

It is strongly recommended that the host server should be changed or the hosting provider should be requested to give a different (separate) IP address for this domain.

Language claimed in HTML meta tag should match the language actually used on the web page. Otherwise can be misinterpreted by Google and other search engines. Our service has detected that English is used on the page, and it matches the claimed language. Our system also found out that main page’s claimed encoding is iso-8859-1. Changing it to UTF-8 can be a good choice, as this format is commonly used for encoding all over the web and thus their visitors won’t have any troubles with symbol transcription or reading.

Visitor World Map

Country of origin for 41.7% of all visits is New Zealand. It lies approximately 7780 miles away from the server location (United States) and such a long distance can negatively affect website speed, as it takes some time for data to travel back and forth between those places. That’s why one of the best ways to speed up page load time for the majority of users is moving the server to New Zealand or just closer to the user base.

For example, adding the following code snippet into HTML <head> tag will help to represent this web page correctly in social networks:
